Horseheads, NY (WENY) -- Corning Big Flats, LLC is building another facility in Horseheads. Resolutions authorizing the Agency to undertake the project were approved by the Chemung County Industrial Development Agency today at their meeting.
The company originally built a storage facility for Corning Incorporated several years ago on Sing Sing Road and they are now building a second facility.
This building will be behind the original one at the same location. County officials say the construction of the building will create several new job opportunities.
Executive Director of the IDA, Mike Krusen says "it's about a 14 million dollar project we anticipate somewhere between 70 to 80 construction jobs over a
period, construction period that will probably be up to a year. So it's a good, solid project for that location and it will be a similar building to the one that's there, a little larger and obviously it's good news in the sense that Corning needs that kind of space to obviously store and warehouse its products that it's in the process of selling."
The building will be around 200 thousand square feet and will store materials, supplies, and products for Corning Incorporated.
